Capital Networks partners with US Government-Certified World Media Net to drive digital signage solutions to the military market

  • US Government Directive stipulates improved communication is critical with all personnel on military bases
  • Clientbase includes Scott Air Force Base, Fort Eustis and McConnell Medical Air Force Base and Medical Center
Ontario, Canada – 10 February 2010 Capital Networks Ltd (CNL), a leading global provider of broadcasting and dynamic digital signage software, has announced a strategic new partnership with US based World Media Net – a Government-Certified digital signage reseller with extensive experience in the military sector. World Media Net will deliver CNL’s industry-leading Audience™ digital signage platform into military bases across America, Canada and worldwide. Over 20 military institutions have already ordered the Audience™ solution and clients include Scott Air Force Base, Fort Eustis – home of the US Army Transportation Corps – Malmstrom Air Force Base and McConnell Medical Air Force Base and Medical Center.

The significant take-up of digital signage systems is in direct response to a new US Government Directive that stipulates better communication with all personnel on military bases following the shootings at Fort Hood. CNL's Audience™ solution provides military bases – which are often spread out over wide geographic areas, even across different countries – with a centralized platform for their digital signage and emergency notification system. This ensures that any emergency messaging is communicated consistently, within seconds, to military and civilian personnel, wherever they are.  

Robert Wolgamotti, Director at World Media Net, has over ten years experience in the US Navy, as well as almost 25 years expertize in broadcast media networks: "CNL's Audience™ solution provides a perfect fit for military organizations. For a start, it's very user-friendly so doesn't require a team of IT people to run it; it's an all-in-one system unlike competitor's offerings that have several complicated pieces of equipment running simultaneously. The other benefit of a single system is that it can be rolled-out to multiple sites quickly and easily, which is important because military bases are usually spread out over large geographic areas, sometimes across states, countries and continents.

"Centralization is also the key to effective and timely emergency messaging. While individual military departments demand their own signage control and programming, emergency messaging must be able to pre-empt or over-ride departmental messages. It is for this reason many bases want to standardize on a single digital signage vendor to synchronize emergency messaging. Effective emergency communication is more critical than ever and Audience™ is the best digital signage solution on the market to provide it," Robert Wolgamotti added.

Together, Capital Networks and World Media Net will provide military clients with pre- and post-sales support and consultation, systems training and help in creating broadcast content.

"Until recently, military bases weren't using digital signage; they still relied on power point slides and these wouldn't be broadcast to all areas of the base – to housing quarters for example, where personnel live," James Vair, VP Business Development at CNL, commented. "Over the past year, we've seen a steady rise in the number of bases taking on digital signage systems and this has accelerated in the past couple of months after the Pentagon's new directive to improve communication and emergency notification. We are delighted to be working with World Media Net because it is a highly qualified firm focused on the military market. The partnership ensures that more bases benefit from our industry leading signage solution, as well as World Media Net's in depth understanding of what military institutions need to make the system work."
